Notes: [BDT #62]
Paul Arceneaux was slated to play "Julius Caxton" but suffered a fractured wrist while assisting with construction of the new Bayou space during rehearsals. He was replaced by Jon Russo, who, in his Bio, wished Paul to "break a leg" in his next production. Ironically, Jon later broke a leg himself during the run of a production at Theatre 13.
